the best resource for those with a disability is a professional vocational rehabilitation counselor.
the state maintains a list for use within its comp program and you can make arrangements for private pay help from them as well
http://www.dir.ca.gov/dwc/SJDB/VRTWC_list.pdf

of course, the state department of rehabilitation and private employment agencies also have resources to get you back into the labor market.
Reminder :
........Each state has their own comp system; POST YOUR STATE to get accurate information. Use the search feature to find information from similar questions.
THANKS FOR POSTING.

I assume the job you had at the time of your injury would not allow you to come back either with accommodations or another position?

Can I ask what you are having difficulties with, I assume your hand is not healed and you may need accommodation? I am not familiar with your states laws regarding having to disclose if you had a work related injury previously, as this can be a problem too. 

If you need accommodation for your injury there are resources available to help.This is a resource link for those who are looking for employment and who need accommodation. Some companies are looking to hire people who may need some accommodations as there are many benefits to do so. This is a link for info and job search here.

This is another job search if you need accommodation for an injury:
http://www.gettinghired.com/

This is the US Department of Labor link to help those with disabilities find employment. One of the topics is entrepreneurship for those with disabilities with help from the government. I do not know very much about it, but this is something that you may want to look into and if not you can click the next link and search through the site to see if there is assistance for you. You can also google help finding employment with a disability. Again, I am just assuming from your post you need accommodation for your hand. If this is not the problem with finding employment please let me know what obstacles you are having.

I am not an attorney.Anything I write should not be considered legal advice.I am writing from my own personal experiences,which is not from any sort of legal background. You should consult with an attorney over legal issues. In California, if you cannot get an attorney you can consult with an I&A officer.
